Glossary of Paging Terminology
2-TONE - A popular analog paging format in which pagers respond to a combination of two tones.
5/6-TONE - A popular analog paging format in which pagers respond to a quick burst of five or six tones.
A
....................................................................................................................................................................
ACCESSORIES - Items that enhance the function or appearance of a pager, including colored or
decorated cases, leather cases and safety chains.
AIRTIME - The amount of time required to transmit a message.
AIRWAVES - Telecommunications industry jargon for radio waves.
ALPHA ENCODER - See ALPHA-NUMERIC ENCODER.
ALPHA-NUMERIC - A character set containing letters, digits, punctuation marks and other symbols.
ALPHA-NUMERIC DISPLAY PAGER - A pager that can display text messages (containing numbers,
letters, punctuation, etc.).
ALPHA-NUMERIC ENCODER - A device that allows alpha-numeric pages to be sent directly to the
paging system. This method is considered to be much more efficient and cost-effective than using a dispatch
center to transcribe the text messages.
ANALOG CAP CODE - An alpha-numeric code representing a unique tone combination that serves to
identify a pager within a system that uses an analog paging format. (See also: 2-TONE or 5/6-TONE.)
ANALOG PAGING FORMAT - An older method of radio paging where the paging terminal uses a
combination of tones to activate a pager. Used primarily to transmit voice messages, this format is much
slower and has a very limited capacity.
ANTENNA - A device that converts electrical currents into electromagnetic waves, usually placed on top
of tall buildings and other structures like towers. Antennas can be uni-directional, bi-directional or omnidirectional.
ARPU - (Average Revenue Per Unit) One indicator of a wireless business’s operating performance. ARPU
measures the average monthly revenue generated for each customer unit, such a cellular phone or pager,
that a carrier has in operation. Severely declining ARPU is a negative sign that may indicate a carrier is adding
too many low-revenue generating customers to its rolls.
B
....................................................................................................................................................................
BAND - A range of frequencies or wavelengths between two given limits. Examples include: UHF and VHF.
BAUD - A unit of signaling speed. The speed in baud is the number of discrete elements processed per
second.
BAUD RATE - The speed at which data is transmitted and/or processed. The POCSAG digital paging
format allows pages to be sent at baud rates of: 512, 1200 and 2400. Golay format transmissions are sent at
a standard speed, which is approximately 600 baud.
BRAVO - The brand name of a line of popular Motorola pagers.
BUSY HOUR - See PEAK USAGE RATE.
C
....................................................................................................................................................................
CAP CODE - The unique combination of tones or digits that identifies a pager. (See also: ANALOG CAP
CODE, DIGITAL CAP CODE.)
CAPACITY - The maximum amount of traffic possible for a paging system. It is determined by the formats
used and the number of frequencies and cap codes available.
CENTRAL OFFICE - The local telephone company’s centralized switching equipment. Calls placed or
received in their service area are routed to the proper destination by a powerful computer within this
facility.
CENTRAL PAGING TERMINAL - The primary hub of a wide-area, regional, or nationwide paging
network. This equipment processes pages for every network subscriber and insures that each page is
transmitted throughout the coverage area, either by phone line or satellite transmissions.
CHURN - A measure of the number of subscribers who leave or switch to another carrier’s service.
COLORED CASE - A pager accessory that is available in a wide variety of colors, patterns, materials and
styles.
COMMON CARRIER - A government-regulated company responsible for providing telecommunications
services in a particular geographic area, giving people access to communications at a cost.
COVERAGE AREA - The geographic area serviced by a paging system. It is influenced by the number and
type of transmitters in use and their geographic location. Other factors, such as weather, solar activity and
interference also influence this area.
COVERAGE PATTERN - See COVERAGE AREA.
D
....................................................................................................................................................................
DATA - A singular noun meaning information.
DATA RATE - See BAUD RATE.
DEAD SPOT - A place within a system’s coverage area where a pager will not work, usually because
transmitted signals cannot penetrate an obstruction like a hill, a building, tunnel, etc.
DELAY - The amount of time required to transmit a page. It is measured from the moment the page
request is entered until transmission is completed.
DIGITAL - A character set containing only numbers. (Also: NUMERIC.)
DIGITAL CAP CODE - A unique six- or seven-digit number that serves to identify a pager within a
system that uses a digital paging format. (See also: CAP CODE.)
DIGITAL DISPLAY PAGER - A pager that is capable of displaying numbers only.
DIGITAL PAGING FORMAT - A method of radio paging where the paging terminal uses a unique
combination of six or seven digits to identify a pager within the system. POCSAG and GSC are the two most
popular examples.
DISPATCH CENTER - A facility staffed by human operators who type in and transmit text messages for
alpha-numeric paging customers.
DISPATCH OPERATOR - An employee at a dispatch center.
DISPATCHER - The person responsible for coordinating the schedules of a mobile workforce. The
workers may wear tone-only pagers that, when activated, alert them to contact the dispatcher via phone or
radio for further instructions. Generally, the dispatcher is the only person with the number for a tone-only
pager. (See also: DISPATCH OPERATOR.)
DOWNLINK - A link from a satellite to an earth station.
DOWNTIME - The total time a system is out of service due to equipment failure.
E
....................................................................................................................................................................
EARTH STATION - A satellite transmitter/receiver used in satellite paging networks to send and receive
page requests. Linked to the paging terminal, the station then puts the page requests into the system’s queue
to be transmitted.
ENHANCED SERVICE - The combination of basic paging service with other peripheral services.
F
....................................................................................................................................................................
FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION (FCC) - An independent federal agency, authorized
by the Communications Act of 1934, responsible for regulating national telecommunications.
FILL-IN TRANSMITTER - A small transmitter used to service dead spots in a system’s coverage area.
FLEX: A Motorola Inc.-licensed protocol that gives carriers more capacityon their networks and faster
transmission times. Also refers to the FLEX family of protocols: FLEX, InFLEX and ReFLEX.
FORMAT - A pager “language.” A method of organizing data that is transmitted to a pager.
FREQUENCY - The “channel” a pager receives. Technically, it refers to the wavelength of a broadcast
radio signal or the rate at which a current alternates.
G
....................................................................................................................................................................
GOLAY FORMAT TRANSMISSION - A radio signal (message) intended for a Golay pager.
GOLAY SEQUENTIAL CODE (GSC) - The digital paging format developed by Motorola. A proprietary
property, only Motorola pagers utilize this (approximately) 600 baud rate format. Commonly referred to
simply as GOLAY.
GROUP CALL - A feature that allows a dispatcher to alert a group of pagers with a single phone call.
H
....................................................................................................................................................................
HERTZ (Hz) - A unit of frequency equal to one cycle per second.
I
